As we know now, Y was never reregistered, only the no letter and Z series.
Hi all,
In 1939 a new Motor Vehicle Act was introduced by the Government of India. All vehicles were compulsory re-registered and this was done in 1939 and in 1940. In all the original registration documents the original number was mentioned on the opening page on top. When a duplicate registration book was issued, in most cases this number was not put again.
Please note that all Bombay state numbers were re-registered at that time, and the new series were assigned with area specific registrations. So Bombay stated with BMW, Ahmedabad got BYA, Pune had BYF but I am not sure if that was the first series, Nagpur had BYJ.
Re-registration occurred in 1939 and 1940 for sure.

Cheers harit

Has anybody got any info on an ex-Dewas Rolls Royce. I don’t have any more details of the car. Sanghis has bought it somewhere in the late 80s or early 90s and later believed to have sold it. Any pictures or location info?
